Will ‘Breitbart’ Become a Verb?
Like many, I’ve been following the death of Andrew Breitbart on March 1 with great interest, for a number of reasons.
His passing may well have been due to natural causes, on that subject the jury’s still out, and likely will remain out for a long, long time. The public may never get the straight facts of this…but that doesn’t diminish its significance. When you consider that as a conservative gadfly he was certainly annoying to the Establishment, they can’t have been too broken up by his death if we’re going to speak honestly about him. However, when you take into account the reports that he was literally within hours of releasing videos purported to show a younger Barack Obama in a highly unflattering light, videos that if as Breitbart claimed would show Obama as a radical would-be totalitarian…thereby putting a serious crimp in his 2012 re-election plans…that moves this death into the Mighty Damn Convenient category. Here’s Breitbart announcing this news at February’s Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington:
I’ll be the first one to tell you that I didn’t know a whole lot about Andrew Breitbart; I got the feeling a while back that he was a bit too conventionally Republican for my taste, he seemed to have an affinity for guys like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, who all too often give Republicans a pass for behavior that, if perpetrated by a Democrat, would have them frothing. Still, one thing was clear, he had not been obviously co-opted and spoke his own mind.
That’s why I paid attention to this video that was just released on YouTube by a creator I like:
This author also publishes a fine series of videos discussing his take on our often-confusing world that I’ve found useful. Not that his views contain any new information for me, I just like his method of presenting that information, and I’ve lost count of the number of times he’s referenced the same thing I would if I were discussing whatever topic he was examining.
In the above video, what caught my attention was his statement that “Andrew was deeply entrenched in the false left/right paradigm,” a concept near and dear to my heart, and one I’ve discussed on this blog as well as in my articles for the American Daily Herald…that line alone made certain my interest was held for the rest of the video.
This is fascinating stuff; could the close attention that will be paid to the results of Breitbart’s autopsy as a result of so may peoples’ reaction to the news of his death as a reflexive thought that he was murdered to get rid of him yield important results?
One of the things I love about the internet is how it’s changed the perception of conspiracies from a knee-jerk reaction that such things are ridiculous and considering them seriously is the mark of a disturbed mind to a more open acceptance that they can and do happen, thanks to all of the information available…public and verifiable…that a great many conspiracies have indeed been perpetrated throughout our history.
Will it be said in the future when an inconvenient person is murdered but an attempt is made to disguise the crime as ‘suicide’ or ‘natural causes’ that the person has been ‘Breitbarted?’
